It has become all too apparent that the battle for America’s soul is being waged by basically two types of people. Those who wish to return the nation to its former glory as a beacon of liberty for the American people and the world; and those who wish to see the Constitution and all it stands for burn in the fires of collective tyranny.
An example of the latter was recently demonstrated during a New York fundraiser for Seattle Socialist Councilwoman ( and fromer organizer in the local Occupy movement) Kshama Sawant. FDL reports that during a speech given at the event Progressive author and journalist Chris Hedges called for the overthrow of the American system.
“The only response, if we are going to recover a country that does not slip into a corporate, oligarchy tyranny…is if we overthrow the system,” Hedges said. “Let me repeat that word in case anyone from Homeland Security is here and that’s overthrow.”
This isn't the first time Chris Hedges has openly called for a revolution. During an interview in 2013 Mr. Hedges stated that, “I’m calling for the overthrow of this system”.
A quick like at the Nation Institutes's stable of writers makes me believe he is probably not alone in this type thinking.
